Motorcycle Accidents in California

Los Angeles, CA – Motorcycle Crash with Injuries at Floral Dr & N Eastern AveEvery year, tens of thousands of motorcyclists across the country are left injured following motor vehicle accidents. Although these accidents can take place at any location, the majority of them are reported at intersections.

According to statistics, approximately 70 percent of motorcycle accidents take place at intersections across the country. Here in California, this is one of the most common locations for these accidents to occur. In most cases, these accidents can be attributed to some act of negligence.

It is incredibly common for motorcyclists to be struck by vehicles that turn out in front of them without looking. When drivers run through red lights or pass stop signs at intersections, they place the lives of innocent riders at risk. Unfortunately, impairment, distraction, and even drowsiness can contribute to these accidents taking place so frequently.

Motorcyclists who are involved in accidents are more likely to suffer serious injuries. Their overall lack of protection places them at increased risk of suffering severe spinal cord injuries, severe compound fractures, spinal cord injuries, and other injuries that can cause long-term consequences for them. When motorcyclists are harmed as a result of negligent drivers, they often have legal options available to help them move forward.
